UK free phone numbers, or 0800 numbers, are free for potential customers to call from UK mobiles and landlines and enjoy widespread public recognition as free phone numbers. They give the public the impression that you are confident, professional, and keen to do business. All of our numbers come with an easy-to-use control panel, which you access by the Internet, just enter the number or numbers that you want to divert your calls to. There is no need for extra lines or equipment to use the service. It works using your existing phone numbers.
When your customer phones you on your 0800 number, the call is automatically redirected to the number you specified in your control panel. You can make these changes through the control panel 24 hours a day, and changes take effect immediately. The control panel has an easy-to-use call hunting facility. You could set calls to go to your office first and then your mobile. When someone phones you on your number, the call will first be diverted to your office number. And if you do not answer, it will try you on the mobile number. If you’re still unable to answer, it could go to voicemail or to our live answering service, which an extra chargeable service.
The live answering service would act as a back-up for you, so that only calls that you do not answer would be taken. A skilled receptionist based in the UK will answer calls in your company name using your preferred greeting. They will take the caller’s name, number, and a short message. You’d receive immediate notification including the caller’s messaging contact details by e-mail and SMS.
